We would like to extend our thanks for your interest in applying for and acquiring scholarships. UTC scholarship funds are limited and the awarding process is competitive. Meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee a student will receive a scholarship. The best way to improve your candidacy is to always submit all required materials as soon as possible. Keep in mind, to be screened for UTC Scholarship funds, all accepted students must complete the UTC Online Scholarship Application. First-Time Freshmen, in particular, should always apply for scholarships within 3-5 days of their acceptance by UTC Admissions.

The 2016-2017 UTC Online Scholarship Application is now available! Will you be a first-time freshman at UTC for Fall 2016? Will you be a continuing UTC student or a new Transfer student to UTC for Fall 2016? We are preparing for and getting excited about the 2016-2017 academic year.

As always, keep in mind that university scholarships are very competitive and funds are limited, so please apply early. Also, be sure the information you include in your application is accurate. Finally, don’t forget that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens every January 1, for the next academic year. We encourage you to complete this online as soon as it opens, as it provides much needed information as well. The FAFSA is also your application for the Tennessee Lottery HOPE Scholarship, so put January 1 on your calendar every year. For more information on federal/state financial aid, specifically UTC's Steps to Apply, visit the UTC Financial Aid home page.
